According to Manna Church’s website, its mission is to glorify God by equipping His people to change their world and by planting churches with the same world-changing vision.
Here in Fayetteville, Manna Church’s Cliffdale site is a haven for many in the community.
Members and visitors can expect to experience a contemporary worship style at Manna. The church is home to both a children’s and teen ministry.
Manna Church offers four weekend worship services and additional services at their Anderson Creek Site. The earliest service begins at 8:00 a.m. while the latest service begins at 12:45 p.m. On Thursdays at the Anderson Creek Site, there is a 6:30 p.m. service.
At Manna Church, members and visitors have the opportunity to join a Small Group. One of the many Small Groups is “A Woman’s Touch” which is exclusively for women who are passionate about God and serving others. The primary goal of the group is to grow in the knowledge and application of biblical truth so the “inner woman” matches the “outer woman.”
Couples have the chance to join the “Aim for Marriage” Small Group. Here, members hope to join in worship together, pray for each other, and facilitate weekly discussions about different areas where Christ is calling each marriage represented to grow, and how participants can help one another in that journey.
Members of Manna Church participate in Outreach Opportunities like Manna’s Dream Center Food Pantry, which is where team members assist with stocking the food/diaper pantry and accompanying guests while they “shop.”
Another Outreach Opportunity is to be a part of the Manna Dream Center Lunch SERVE Team. The Manna Dream Center began feeding lunch to those in need during the COVID pandemic and, since 2020, Manna has handed out food every day between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
On Sept. 10 Manna Church will be giving out food to military families. The event will be a “drive-thru” style event, meaning families will stay in their cars.
Thanks to the kindness of CVS Health, Tyson Foods, Manna Church and the major suppliers of the commissary, families will receive a bundle of healthy, nutritious food — including protein, a variety of seasonal produce, breakfast items, canned goods and household products.
This event is exclusively for active duty, National Guard, Reserve and veteran families. Families must pre-register and Manna Church requests that participants arrive at their scheduled time in order to help maintain a safe traffic flow.
Tickets are available based on the pick-up time of the participants’ bundle.
Participants may only register for one time slot per family. The event will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
When families arrive, they must present their Eventbrite confirmation (mobile or printed) at the drive-thru check-in. There is a limit of one bundle per household. Manna asks that participants remain in their vehicles throughout the duration of the event and allow the church member to do the heavy lifting.
